V359 Cen: The third historical outburst in May

R. Stubbings reported that the dwarf nova V359 Cen was experienced the third historical outburst on 15 May (vsnet-campaign 70). The last outburst was in 1999 July when the possible existence of superhumps was reported. From A. Pearce's observation on 17 May, a 0.5mag decline within two days was revealed (vsnet-campaign 86), and then, the outburst recovered. A fading rate from outburst is comparable to the superoutburst fading (vsnet-campaign 119). It is confirmed that the linear fading continued till 25 May.
